? how much can you use him? >> president clinton has been an enormous ally for us and asset. two weekends back he was coming in the next day in pennsylvania, and colorado, and people remember that he was a president that came in when the economy was tough, and by the end of his eight years the economy was going well. remember, he and president reagan both in their first mid terms had approval ratings that were sim to where president obama's are right now, but president clinton did so many things to get that economy that was challenged climbing again, and i know president obama looks at his job and feels like it's basically the feel job, take an anemic economy and have it grow stronger, and deal with the deficits over the course of his presidency. there is much to emlate. the good news is, we had a wake-up call earlier in the year. none of the candidates have been running complacently. they have been running scared. for as much concerns people have about the democrats, look at the republican approval rating in the polls. this is not a popular republican party right now. >> some ma

30 years in prison for a crime they say they never committed. >>> great to have you with us, everybody. just weeks before the midterm elections both republicans and democrats are trying to figure out whether the tea party movement will help or hurt them. there's so much discontent over the economy and high unemployment that americans are telling us in poll after poll that the status quo just won't work any more. in the politco george washington battleground poll only 28% said the country was headed in the right direction. 63% said it was on the wrong track. a brand-new poll out today gives us insights as to how they're feeling about the tea party. chief washington correspondent nora nor norah o'donnell joins me now. tell me what it gives us as we're heading into november. >> it reflects what we've seen in our poll, a lot of americans are fed up with the direction of this country. they don't trust washington. they don't trust big institutions. and they want change. and then you see segments of the voting population that not only want change, but they are mad as hell and that
meteorologist jeff morrow joins us from washington, d.c. jeff, you're getting pounded and you don't have an umbrella and it's not a good day out there. >> yeah, it's not a good day to be a meteorologist, at least one that's standing out in the rain anyway, tamron. it's been raining on and off and at times it becomes lighter and we just had a heavy downpour move through here and we weren't sure we could do the shot with you and cleared up just enough. it was pouring here about a minute or two ago. still coming down hard and there have been some localized flooding areas for instance, i don't know if anybody out there is familiar with the d.c. area but virginia avenue has been closed between 21 and 25th street because of some flooding and some other streets around here, as well. again, i'm on connecticut avenue, if you go that way, it's headed towards the city itself and there are some underpasses here like behind me where connecticut avenue drops down behind dupont circle and it's in the underpasses where oftentimes you get a lot of the water ponding and sometimes those have to be closed.
are accusing democrats of grandstanding. >> they want to use this week for a political exercise. they want to weigh this bill down with controversy and a transparent attempt to show their special interest groups they haven't forgotten about them ahead of the election. >>> just ahead, new york senator kirsten gillibrand and her new bff, lady gaga. >> doesn't it seem to you that we should send home the prejudice, the straight soldier who hates the gay soldier? >> fired up and ready to go? not quite. president obama hears from voters who express their fears over the economy and outline the problem s democrats are facing this november. >>> with us this hour, tim kaine. and will president ahmadinejad take manhattan? iran's president on the world stage. >>> plus, nine americans die in a helicopter crash in southern afghanistan today. with us this hour, state department spokesman p.j. crowley. >>> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in new york. majority leader harry reid has only one hour to convince at least one republican to vote with democrats to try to repeal don't ask, don't tell. the contro

is parked to the west of us. so they're getting a lot now. that's when this area will be affected. new jersey is expected more rain fall than they got for the entire month of august. they're also expecting high wind gusts of 20 to 30 miles per hour. the wind is picking up a little bit right now. some areas are expecting as high as 50 mile-per-hour gusts. now in terms of flooding, i want to show you quickly the river is right on the other side of these trees right here. it's about 100 feet away. that is prone to flooding. this area here where we're standing is built on a floodplain, so that is a concern here. right now the river is about 10 feet below flood stages when the storm is all said and done it's expected to rise about a foot above flood stage, which would lead to minor flooding. on the upside, this rainfall is a it bit of welcomed relief for an area that's been facing drought conditions for most of the year. new jersey has been under a drought watch for most of september. residents were asked to conserve water. another benefit of the drought when paired with the storm is the wa
channel's mike seidel joins us from myrtle beach in south carolina. man, we're all wet. you're dry, but we're soaking wet. how long is this thing going to stick around on the coast? >> reporter: it's going to be about another day or so before it completely clears the northeast coast, chuck and savannah. down here in north myrtle beach, 117 golf courses and a lot of golfers waiting to get back out after a very rainy period. let me show you some of the pictures from yesterday. wilmington, north carolina, has now set three, four, and five-day rainfall records, even wetter than hurricane floyd. they've had upwards of 21 inches of rain since sunday. so a lot of flash flooding there. we also have a tornado watch now, which covers eastern north carolina, all the way up towards d.c. and baltimore. that includes where you are in d.c., until 1:00 this afternoon. there could be some small tornadoes. but you get a sense of all the flooding from the rainfall. these low-lying areas tend to break pretty quickly. so if you get away from the rain, it goes away. we have what's left of nicole, a lot of tropi
coast through the weekend. eric fisher joins us now from ft. lauderdale with the latest. what are you watching, eric? >> i'm watching a lot of rain, tamron, moving into south florida. it is not the type of day that the beach resorts hope for. we are going to see this rain continuing through the afternoon into the evening as well. although winds not going to be a big part of this story. i've got a little personal weather station here. the water is off to my left. when i look at it, we're talking 5 to 15 miles an hour. that's certainly not an epic storm. this isn't going to go down in the history books. in terms of the wind, really not a big deal. it became a tropical storm by reaching wind speeds of 40 miles an hour. as it moves northward, we could see gusts. the 4 to 8 inches of rainfall in south florida, that can pose a problem, especially for the more urban areas. the water stacks up. we have a lot of paved roads. especially as we get into this evening commute, we could -- we always tell people turn around, don't drown. most of the flooding-related fatalities occur when people try t
as president obama's chief of staff in the senate. white house correspondent is a savannah guthrie joins us now. what is the key impact by rahm leaving and being replaced by pete rouse? >> reporter: it's a real culture shift at the white house. rahm emanuel is a larger than life figure, somebody well known. this is going to be a real difference in style. piece rouse has been with president obama since back in his senate days. he's in old washington hand, been around forforever. he keeps a lower profile, not one of these guys you'll see out at washington parties. doesn't maintain close relationships with washington reporters. i would use the word a beloved figure inside the white house. he's something of a calm erin influence. i'm told by people who have worked with him over the years that he's somebody who has been very strategic and very smart about recruiting top talents. it's kind of a who's who of names in democratic circles. people he's recruited to work for him and anita dun being one of them. he's somebody who has a lot of xperps. he's probably going to be brought in as an acting chief o
word. >> one we should all use today. >> like turning starbucks products into gold. >> or sand. >> i think it is. another great story from the west coast we will be talking about in a little bit. bill clinton, somehow managing to get right smack-dab in the middle of that california gubernatorial campaign. he's not even trying. this guy, jerry brown and bill clinton, these guys just hate each other and impacting that race. >> here's my guess, although bill clinton is now in the middle of that race spiritually, my guess is physically, corporately, he may not be at jerry brown's side campaigning on his behalf before november 2nd. >> jerry brown, i forgot this, he refused to endorse bill clinton in 1992, after clinton had locked down the nomination. >> it's true. >> jerry brown, the first guy to bring up whitewater. jerry brown, a guy that bill clinton, just to set the back story, remember the '92 debate, where clinton gets read -- how dare you attack my wife? before we get to the news. >> it's primary day -- >> hold on. i got you guys some gifts, really quickly. >> oh. >> tuscaloosa. th
journal" poll that 86% of americans think that u.s. companies outsource too much. putting the puzzle together, the republicans don't give a damn. republicans would rather see american companies hire workers in china than give americans, who have, well, nothing. give them a measly $300 check to get them through the next week. the party who pretends to be, let's see, christian, valued, wrap themselves in the flag, and blast these lee greenwood songs along every campaign, really they're just nothing but fraudulent in my opinion. there's nothing more american or christian than helping out your fellow man when they fall on hard times and we're in the midst of hard times. republicans have proven that they have no economic patriotism and only worship at the altar of the almighty dollar. so this election, and we'll talk a lot about this on the march in saturday in washington, this is really about the soul of the country, isn't it? i'm not convinced that it's base versus base because there's a lot of people that are caught in the middle of this economic strife that didn't think that they were
. and schools in craven county actually had to close early. eric fisher joins us from ft. lauderdale, florida. wow. looks fun out there. >> oh, yeah. it's a barrel of laughs here in ft. lauderdale. the rain has been coming down. we are waterlogged. some towns have picked up three, four inches of rainfall since yesterday afternoon. as you can see, that rain continues to come down. the main threat with this storm is not the wind. it's not going to be a classic tropical storm. it's just a huge moisture machine. you have to think about this. the center is just south of cuba. the moisture all the way up from the caribbean into pennsylvania. that's where they're starting to see rainfall already. so pretty remarkable event. don't think of it as tropical storm nicole or what will become a nor'easter. just think of it as a heavy rain-maker. now, we are already seeing hydroplaning on the streets as the cars start their evening commute home. we're expecting a very slow ride. some schools have canceled their activities for the end of the day. call ahead to check on those. city officials went to work. mos
cannot let the country fall backwards because the rest of us did not care enough to fight. the stakes are too high for our country and for your future, and i will get out there and fight as hard as i can, and i know you will too to make sure we keep moving forward. >> but the president and the democrats have a lot of ground to make up. 34 days until election day. a majority says the country is headed in the wrong direction. republicans are making political hey out of that perception. the political house leader is insisting lawmakers should not leave d.c. until the vote is taken. >> i believe there is a bipartisan majority in the house and senate who want to extend all of the current tax rates. but if democrat leaders leave town without stopping the tax increases, they are turning their backs on the american people. >> joining me now, former san francisco mayor, willie brown, joins me today. >> thank you for having me. >> is the president giving democrats what they need, a common enemy, a leader on the front line urging the troops forward? >> absolutely. as a smater of fact it's his re
